It's a generational thing I suppose and I've seen it in the U.S. in recent years as well.

I've seen video games on the iPhone while PF on climbout in Chinese metric RVSM. Texting and doing Instagram selfies while taxiing a widebody. Popping a GoPro out unannounced to record HD video of the cockpit when the throttles come up on a max gross takeoff roll.

And, if you say anything, you are the bad guy for being insensitive to your coworker's needs.
